High Energy

Yesterday we took the kids to vote at the elementary school at the end of the block. I didn't vote. I'm not allowed. I was just happy that the day had finally arrived that the campaign trucks would cease to make their omnipresence known. Plus, in the days leading up the election, Maggie wasn't sleeping well. It's all over now, but instead of getting a good night's sleep last night, someone in the house stayed up until three watching a cycle of pundits rehash the day's events.

So anyway, we're there at the thing, and there's this track. Franklin liked the swings a bit, and the seesaw was not at all harrowing. There were kids playing basketball and when he walked out towards them across the track, he just followed the curve of the lane marker. In the end he ran around the 200m track 5 times in around 15-20 minutes, stopping a couple times for water. Maggie and I were both shocked when he ran all the way around, and then ran around again. But 5 times? Great Googly Moogly!

He was pretty tired by the time we got back. But in one of these pictures he shows off his ability to reach the button for the 12th floor (we live on 11). He proudly helped a neighbor press 19 the other day.

Frank had some help with this Lego creation yesterday, but he's finally to the age where when his father erects a tower, he doesn't knock it over. Well, Happy Erection Day!
